The month of July is going to be filled with political, religious, and social events all around the world. During the first week the Uranus-Saturn ninefold square (July 4-8) is not positive for the Bush administration and possibly for the United States as it will become responsible for violence or terrorism against the United States either targeting US interests abroad or the United States directly being involved in fighting terrorism in Iraq and other places around the world (including the United States). During the second week the ninefold squares between the Saturn and lunar nodes (July 11-14) will be responsible for violence and suicide bombings in the middle east, especially in Iraq, Israeli-Palestine and Saudi Arabian region. And during the final week Pluto-Saturn ninefold square (July 29-Aug 2) will bring a new wave of violence in mostly the middle-east region.
Despite the continued instability in the middle-east Uranus-Ketu (July 14- Oct 4) trine will be responsible for economical and political stability in the United States.
The countries that are likely to make headline news are: United States, Iraq, Middle Eastern countries including Saudi-Arabia, Israel and Palestine.
- United States of America:
President Bush and his administration:
In addition to the retrograde Pluto’s continued transit over the President bush’s natal Ketu (Southern lunar node) and opposing his natal Rahu (Northern lunar node) the Pluto will oppose his natal Uranus. As a result, there will certainly be an irreversible transformation of his foreign policy affecting the outcome of post Iraq war power transition in a very negative way and his popularity at home hitting a new record low. In his ninefold progressive chart Pluto will return to the fourth house creating a very unstable atmosphere in the white house as well as in the country from terrorism threat standpoint. The transit of Pluto opposing his natal Uranus will certainly be devastating for President Bush. From planetary cycles standpoint, presently he is being influenceed by Saturn and Pluto cycles. The Saturn will be squaring his natal Moon and will be entering the seventh house of his ninefold progressive chart. That clearly suggests that his dealing with adversaries (especially the liberal European and coalition allies) will be severely tested and scrutinized. Consequently the White House will be on defensive most of the time in justifying their course of actions. And finally it would be very prudent of President Bush to take care of his health and personal safety all through the month.
For the country July will prove to be an eventful month from political, social, economical and religious standpoint. While Uranus-Ketu trine (July 14 – Oct 4) will positively influence the nation with rapid technological progress through new inventions and discoveries the deadly ninefold squares (Uranus-Saturn, Rahu/Ketu-Saturn, Pluto Saturn) will create a very uneasy and anxiety-filled atmosphere (possibly due to new threats of terrorism in the United States) during the first two weeks and the last few days of the month.
For the Republic Party the first two weeks will be very challenging in resolving the internal disputes among its own party members. Perhaps religion related issues will take the center stage in Party’s agenda during the second half of the month.
During the first week, the Democratic Party is likely to struggle in defining a clear position on issues like post Iraq war actions, and during the third week on issues that deal with religion. Nonetheless the second half of the month looks real good for the party. However, John Kerry will continue to have difficulty in defining himself as a clear alternative to Bush and for some strange reason or due to unexpected event he is likely to run into a situation where he will be forced to defend himself (perhaps for his radical stand on certain issues).
· Russia: Except for July 11-14 and July 25 – Aug 7 periods the month of July will turn out to be positive for Russia and particularly for Putin administration. During the stated periods political unrests may create new challenges for the Putin administration.
· Europe: During the first week of July most of the major countries are likely to openly disagree with Bush administration on foreign policy issues. The second week may turn out to be a week of social or political unrest in Europe.
· Religion: Neptune-Jupiter quincunx (July 4 – 14) may create a period of uncertainty or confusion in religious world. But overall it’s not a bad month from religion standpoint.
· Natural and Man-made Calamities: The ninefold squares: Uranus-Saturn (July 4-8), Saturn-Rahu/Ketu (July 11-14) and Pluto-Saturn (July 25 -31) are likely to be responsible for events related to both man-made and natural calamities.
While man-made calamities may manifest themselves in terrorism, unrest, violence, and accidents, the natural calamities are likely to include extreme weather conditions such as severe cold winters, and equally intensive droughts; and thunderstorms, earthquakes, air crashes and fires.
